TUGUEGARAO CITY — A dump truck loaded with concrete aggregates fell Monday into a 40-meter ravine in Tanudan town, Kalinga province, leaving its driver and his helper injured.

Regino Wacas, who chanced upon the accident, sought help from rescue personnel to immediately take the two men to a hospital.


Wacas told the Inquirer that the victims, both workers of a hardware company, were on their way to deliver the concrete aggregates to a client when they figured in the accident.

A part of the provincial road in Barangay Lower Taloctoc had been eroded by the incessant rains in the past nights, Wacas said.


The truck’s heavy load could have been a factor in the accident, according to the rescuers. INQ
